This easy milk chocolate ganache recipe is perfect a cake or cheesecake frosting or filling, or use slightly melted as a delicious glaze! You can also whip the cooled ganache, for a delicious whipped chocolate frosting.

For the best tasting ganache, I recommend using milk chocolate, but you can also try semi-sweet or dark chocolate for a different flavor.

Some people like to add flavored liqueur. In that case, decrease the amount of cream so that you have 1 cup liquid in total.
